Michael Sailstorfer - Politics with Art History
The installations of Michael Sailstorfer operate in the tradition of Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Beuys and continually test the limits of sculpture. The artist uses banal and everyday materials and objects from honeydew melons to police cars and arranges them in playful and entertaining new combinations. His reconstructed sculptures and expansive installations extend beyond the confines of visual perception; and many even encourage the viewer to approach them through the sense of smell.
